Shorrock Illustrated Brochure (Mid 1960's)

Click on the image to the left to see a copy of the most comprehensive catalogue ever produced by Allard to promote the Shorrock range of blowers. This catalogue was produced in the late 60's or early 70's and in all honesty was a bit of a last gasp attempt to sell these blowers. The company finally closed in the mid 70's.


Allard / Shorrock Brochure (1968)

A very comprehensive extract from the Allard Motor Co’s tuning catalogue from 1968.

Allard’s were Ford main dealers by 1968 so were almost exclusively involved in the tuning of Ford engines & vehicles.

The Shorrock section of the catalogue, does still have some BMC content though.

The Allard "Dragon" Anglia

The Dragon was a promotional car that was built by Allard to promote their Shorrock range of superchargers. Allard were the main distributor for Shorrock Superchargers throughout the 1960's & 1970's.

The Dragon appeared all over the country at Drag Race meetings and was always guaranteed to create a stir.

The Dragon was fitted with a MASSIVE C200 Shorrock Blower.
